TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #116: A Crash Course in Meprolight History with Eric and Jordan

Today I’ve brought on Eric and Jordan from Meprolight to talk a little bit about their company’s history not just here in the US, but where they started back in Israel. Like the US, Israel has a lot of domestically produced firearms, optics, and ordnance which they sometimes export to other countries. Meprolight along with IWI are just some of these companies and they’ve both recently put a lot more effort into producing products for regular consumers instead of just for military outfits.

TFB Review: Meprolight MPO-S Micro Red Dot Sight

Meprolight recently introduced two red dot sights, the MPO-S and MPO-F, both of which are open emitter sights.
